Might be a Cinneli but definitely not a Cinelli.

Some better photos would help. Keep in mind that a rim, hub, or wheel, aren't the same.

My guess is you have a pretty basic Taiwanese fixie frame with a mix of components. The deep wall rims built into wheels with lots of spokes are pretty basic.

You can measure the rear dropout spacing (120, 126, or 130mm). The dropouts should be centered on the frame, and a rear single speed wheel might not be dished.

They may well be robotic welded.

Not a Cinelli.

It's just another mass produced Asian frame, without the Cinelli stickers.

that looks possible the serial num doesnt really make sense starting with GH? if its the kilo tt, the crankset,pedals,forks,seat,tires,possibly the rims,and maybe the handlebars have been changed.
